Camber Survey System
The What, Why & How
What is the Camber Survey System?
The Camber Survey System was developed in partnership with DEI researchers and methodologists at Claremont Graduate University. The two-part survey, which consists of an Workplace Survey and Employee Survey, was designed and administered to uphold the rigor, integrity, and reliability of the workplace survey process. The results of the Survey are provided exclusively to Camber partners who participate in the Camber Survey System. The data collected serves as a directional indicator of cohort-wide trends as well as provides organizational specific data which captures employee perspectives on your organization’s DEI efforts. Your organization-specific data is for use by your organization only. Both individual employee and organization specific data are designed to protect the confidentiality of everyone who has participated in the Survey.

”Working with Camber Outdoors for the last three years has allowed us to measure our DEI success against our commitment, which is ingrained across all business functions and our leadership ethos. We have taken our past survey results and created a robust DEI tracking program, and we’ve been able to effectively tie DEI efforts and compensation, making this goal-setting more meaningful and tangible. Additionally, our staff are better trained to work collaboratively with our guests and the community. This has been a valuable partnershipSuzie BentonDirector of Human Resources, Ski Taos
